Kulpsville, PA — SKF® spherical roller thrust bearings are engineered to accommodate heavy axial and simultaneous radial loads in high-speed industrial equipment applications. Their self-aligning capability further allows these bearings to compensate for shaft deflection and misalignment without reducing bearing service life.
Applications include large vertical electric motors, gearboxes, pumps, fans, crushers, machine tools, injection molding equipment, and other machinery performing at relatively high speeds and with combined loads.
These bearings incorporate asymmetrical rollers and specially designed raceways offering optimum conformity. Cages are made from steel or optional machined brass (for larger bearing sizes). Bore sizes range in diameter from 60mm to 1250mm (2.3622 in to 49.2126 in.) and boundary dimensions conform to ISO 104-2002 standards.
Many additionally are available as Explorer class bearings benefiting from advanced design, material, and manufacturing-process innovations. They can exceed performance normally expected with bearings designed to ISO tolerance specifications to enable improved load-carrying capacity, wear resistance, and speed capabilities and reduced friction, noise, and vibration.
Customized spherical roller thrust bearing solutions can be developed to satisfy particular application requirements.
